Opus is a powerful cultivator, built on a very powerful frame that can withstand stresses, extending the working life. With a tine spacing of 27 cm and a soil clearance of 80 cm, the cultivator can handle large amounts of harvest residues while keeping the draught requirement moderate. Levellers and packers are mounted in rubber cushioning to protect the main frame.
With tines spaced at 27 cm Opus allows very good through flow. The unique choice of shins and points available means that the cultivator is very adaptable to local conditions. Adjustable reconsolidation with exchangeable packers gives full flexibility, even with varying soil moisture and soil texture.
